CJEU Judgment: Case C-353/16 MP, 24 April 2018

On 24 April 2018, the CJEU ruled in case C-353/16 MP concerning the preliminary questions referred by the UK Supreme Court on the scope of the subsidiary protection under the Qualification Directive, particularly for victims of torture.

The CJEU found that, under EU law, the fact that a person has in the past been tortured by the authorities of his country of origin but would no longer be at risk of such treatment if he returned to that country is not in itself sufficient justification for granting subsidiary protection. However, in line with the recent case-law of the European Court of Human Rights, namely Paposhvili v. Belgium, the CJEU considered that the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union precludes a Member State from expelling a third country national where such expulsion would, in essence, result in significant and permanent deterioration of that person’s mental health disorders, particularly if such deterioration would endanger his life.
